Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel called the Sabbath “God’s sanctuary in time.” Set aside one day a week for rest, recitation, and special devotional activities. The Sabbath is a perfect occasion to savor the pleasures of friends and family, to delight in the beauty of the natural world, to listen to music, to contemplate art, or to engage in unhurried sex with your partner. This is also a time to give up some of the things you regularly do, such as shopping, watching television, working, doing chores, even talking.
